The new year has arrived and bookings for the 2020 Jawa Perak is now open for those where the brand is available. The motorcycle brand from India owned by Mahinda & Mahindra is set for a mega return in the motorcycle market with their latest entry-level Bobber. Will it be a success? Judging by the looks alone, most probably.
Placed under the helms of Classic Legends, this very pretty Bobber will start deliveries to potential owners starting April 2020. There are, however, doubts from the big guns sitting at the top where the CEO of Mahinda & Mahindra himself stating that their motorcycle business is a “product failure”.
Nevertheless, they’re moving forward with the production of the 2020 Jawa Perak in hopes that it’ll turn things around. Equipped with a 334cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine, the new Jawa Perak produces a healthy 30hp and 31Nm of torque. Compared to the Royal Enfield Classic 350, the Jawa Perak produces roughly 10hp and 3Nm more, which is a good start.
This new Bobber also comes with other great specs like:
- Dual-channel ABS
- Single floating seat
- Blacked out parts
- 14-litre fuel tank + more
The Indian market can get one of these bad boys for INR 1.95 lakh, which is around RM11,169. That is indeed a good price to pay for this sweet looking Bobber. We can probably guess that it’ll do very well here in Malaysia if it somehow can enter the market. And that’s a big if.
